What motivated you to become an egg donor?
So what really motivated me to become an egg donor in the first place was my son. I have a toddler and he’s just so amazing – he’s the best thing ever. So, he really motivated me to want to help intended parents and couples and individuals trying to conceive, so they can gain that same experience that I have with my son, with a child of their own.
Why did you choose Fairfax EggBank?
The reason I chose Fairfax EggBank to begin with is because I liked the idea that after the egg donation procedure, they freeze the eggs so you don’t have to match cycles with anybody, it’s a lot less stressful and it takes a lot of pressure off of egg donors in my personal opinion. And just working with them in general is awesome.
Did you feel any pain or side effects during the process?
A lot of my family and friends have asked me “Was it painful?” , “Did you have any side effects?”, and “How does it work?”. For me, it wasn’t painful at all. You do have, well I had some mild discomfort after the procedure, I would compare it to light menstrual cramping, but the next day I was up doing household stuff – I was actually back at work, so it was a pretty smooth and easy experience for me.
Do you have any regrets about becoming an egg donor?
Knowing that I may have helped a couple conceive a child is just amazing to me, it’s such a rewarding feeling, it just really warms your heart. I can’t even explain it because it’s just – being a mother myself, I couldn’t imagine not having my son and knowing that you’re helping another couple or individuals have a child and conceive a child is just awesome.
